Seattle receiver DK Metcalf will have an MRI on his left knee after injuring himself in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) – Seattle wide receiver DK Metcalf will have an MRI on his left knee after injuring himself in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Coach Pete Carroll said after the Seahawks’ 37-23 win that initial X-rays of Metcalf’s knee were negative. He said more testing would be conducted after the team returned to Seattle.
“It didn’t feel right. He ended up weird and that’s pretty much all I know about at the moment. I’m thrilled there was nothing on the x-rays,” Carroll said.
Metcalf was carted into the dressing room late in the first quarter after his leg appeared to buckle on a passing play on the left touchline near the end zone. He walked to the sidelines before being carted away.

The fourth-year receiver had a catch for 12 yards before the injury.
Safety Ryan Neal said Metcalf was in good spirits when he saw him in the dressing room at half-time and said he was “fine”.
Metcalf came on with 30 receptions for 406 yards and two touchdowns. In the preseason, he signed a three-year, $72 million contract extension.
